In response to the enormous outpouring of grief and shock at the Classy Lane tragedy, by the entire equine community and beyond, a Light Vigil has been planned for Tuesday, January 12, 2016 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m in front of Classy Lane Training Centre.
This quiet, respectful gathering will provide an opportunity to honour and remember the 43 horses that perished so tragically and extend support to the owners, trainers and grooms whose lives have been so terribly affected.
In consideration of the nature of this tragedy and for safety sake, there will be NO FLAME of any kind at this gathering. Please bring flashlights and/or battery-operated candles. You are also invited to bring cards, flowers, letters and/or poems if you feel so inclined.
